Mir--thanks for sharing! I thought I was the only one who couldn't wear eye make-up anymore due to allergies. I wouldn't end up in the ER if I put on eye make-up but my eyes would swell if I wore eye liner or mascara and even days later I would feel the negative effects. I am trying to adjust to not wearing eye make up any longer and even kind of grieving the loss as I look plainer now but maybe if I play up my cheeks and wear nice lipstick as you suggested and even get highlights for my hair it will help. Nobody has really noticed since I stopped wearing eye make-up so maybe it didn't make as much of a difference as I though it did. On a positive note, it is a relief to not have to put on and take it off the make-up each day.
